Deezer has apologized for spoiling a “surprise” BTS prepared for ARMY.
Deezer, a French online music streaming service, mistakenly posted a video that was meant to be released after BTS’s new album dropped on February 21.
In this deleted promotional video, BTS tells ARMY they can now listen to MAP OF THE SOUL: 7 on Deezer. The members were dressed in never before seen outfits in a location that may be the set of a brand new music video.
🚫 • Jamaican ARMYs!
There is a video, leaked from Deezer, that shows the boys promoting their new single on the platform.
The video spoils potential MV outfits and a potential MV location.
The JAU will not be posting this video out of respect for BTS.

The video was removed as quickly as it was posted, and Deezer has apologized for the mishap. “We removed the video as soon as we realised our mistake,” they wrote.
